Adobe Walls already had its name from an earlier and unsuccessful effort to establish a trading post among the Comanche and Kiowa Indians. Thirty years later, in the winter of 1873-1874, hunting crews from western Kansas moved southward into an area that had been the exclusive hunting grounds of the Comanche, Kiowa, Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians. Merchants in Dodge City, Kansas moved with the hunting crews into the new buffalo range and erected stores to serve the needs of the hunters. All this happened in early1874. By June of that year, several hundred hide men were in the Texas Panhandle killing bison by the thousands. During the early morning hours of June 27, 1874, about two hundred Indian warriors attacked the settlement at Adobe Walls. The attack continued until the middle of the afternoon when the Indians retreated into the nearby hills. That was the beginning of the end of Adobe Walls. Today, the site is a registered Texas Archeological Landmark in Hutchinson County. SUBMITTED BY: Henry Chenoweth
